Red Bank Catholic students will now have the opportunity to learn how to translate initial creative concepts into functional designs and 3D walkthroughs with the addition of CADD: 3D Design & Engineering to the RBC curriculum. This new hands-on course proposed by RBC faculty Mr. Ientile and Mr. Nesci will take students through the steps of creating and transforming 2D architectural drawings into 3D models printed on one of the school’s new 3D printers using CADD (Computer Aided Design and Drafting.)
Thanks to an influx of new software, 3D CADD modeling isn't just for engineers anymore. It has revolutionized everything from toy design to aviation. New programs and tools built with ordinary people in mind make it possible to design whatever parts or prototypes one can imagine, and bring them to life with the power of 3D printing. Our students will be challenged to think in another dimension and realize how these tools have found real, practical roles in society.
